On November 6 in the early morning hours, a house fire broke out in the two story home of Alan and Olivia Bekielewski and their two small children. 
While Olivia and her daughter Octavia were able to escape, Alan and their two year old son Orin did not survive, and the house was burned beyond repair. 
Alan and Olivia, along with their families, are amazing people who work hard, and have enriched the lives of so many people. 
Olivia will now have to rebuild her life as well as deal with the expenses of losing her husband and son. 
Any assistance anyone can give would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

The overwhelming amount of donations and support is just priceless, and the families cant thank you all enough.

The fifth person in the house that night, Doug, is responsible for saving Olivia and Octavia that night, and is a true hero. He spent time in the ICU as well, but is now home and attempting to rebuild his life as well. Any support anyone is able to give is much appreciated as well.
There is a GOFundMe page located at https://www.gofundme.com/8u8wp5kk, where donations can be made. Thank you all again, the kindness will never ever be forgotten.
